So as some of you guys know, I'm dropping a new to me lt1 in my camaro. We should begin the swap next week:D I'm doing a cam/bolt ons build right now with heads way down the road. I haven't really thought much about pushrods yet. I'm installing a LE 226/232 .578/.574 110LSA cam in it along with Lunati dual valve springs, Scorpion 1.6rr's, 7/16 studs and 5/16 guide plates. These are the springs I bought for more info on them Lunati LT Dual Valve Spring Kit w/ Steel Retainers, .660 [73925K2]

I have read that if the heads havent been worked on at all (mine haven't) that the stock pushrod length would be fine. So my question is, what pushrods would you guys recommend for me and why are stock pushrods not suppose to be used in builds like these? It would set back my budget a little bit but if any kind of damage could happen as a result of using stock pushrods then I have no problem whatsoever buying hardened aftermarkets, I'm just curious why stockers won't work? Thanks for reading.

You are running guide plates, so the rockers will be NSA, and thus you will want hardened pushrods.

If you know what size you need, I have a set of Trick Flow hardened pushrods I just pulled out of my car, I'll sell you for $60.
I assume they should be stock length since the heads havent been milled or decked. Are yours 7.2?
